According to my eighties cartoons, I should not only be driving my kids in my space mobile to school everyday, but I should be sporting bubble-pink hair with a “contagious” name and wardrobe, have a twin brother that resembles Brad Pitt from “Troy,” and help my quirky uncle evade trouble while trying to solve mysterious clues with his helicopter hat on. Hmm… well, at least we got it right with our Jetson-like Skype and video calling!
While I’m sure that a lot of children of the nineties might differ with me here, cartoons from the 1980s were simply AWESOME and that’s most likely why a lot of our favorite characters from that era are making a comeback. And while My Little Pony and Strawberry Shortcake are enjoying their little comeback with our children, there are so many out there that still need to be dusted off from the back warehouse where they’ve been hiding and put back into the spotlight. Does She-Ra or Jem ring a bell to anyone?
Check out our photo gallery of some of our favorite cartoons from the mid-eighties and tell us, did you watch any of these as a kid? They sure do bring back great memories!
